This game is one of the most strategic games of its time... I spent hours formulating a better way to pop the dice to control the outcome of the game. I just remember playing a thousand time as a kid.

I own two copies of "Frustration". My original game was called "Trouble", but I no longer have it - I don't know what happened to it.
1. My version is called "Frustration". We bought this for our kids many years ago. It's missing one green piece.
2. Travel Games - Frustration. Half-sized board and pieces. Garage sale game, likely paid $1. It's missing one blue piece.
3. A travel version from Jogo Canada in Winnipeg for $9.99 for Chelsea.
I have played Trouble since before grade 4, it was likely my most-played game. It's faster than Aggravation or Parchese. But the dice bubble can get tiresome. My house rule was to always reroll with a cocked die.

Alright, I'm giving it a 10 simply because it's the first game I remember from when I was a kid. I still remember looking at the box and seeing the backwards R from when I was trying to write my name as a four year old.

Well, I give this rating only because of the drinking game rules to this one, which are quite a hit at our campus. Excellent. As an ordinary game worth simply nothing.

Pretty much no strategy, yet it's fun, and that's what matters. My sister and I used to play it a lot.

It's basically sorry but without the cards and with a die. Also its an automatic die so you cant lose it.

oh mensch aergere dich nicht! someone always became upset though, go figure, especially if people were teaming up.
The version we played has a very interesting history check it out on wikipedia - the creator promoted it by sending copies to war hospitals to entertain the patients during ww1 - a genius at marketing!

Classic from childhood. Although it's basically "roll and move," it still has that satisfying cutthroat feel when you get to send someone back home. And it has the Pop-o-matic!

Called "Kimble" in Finland. I've also seen an older version, called "Onnennopat" or something similar. Very addictive, but takes a bit too long with more than two players.

I LOVED Trouble when I was a kid and was so happy to find it stashed in my closet while packing! The box is a tattered mess, a true sign of a well-loved game. I'm giving it a high rating because pop-o-matics are where it's at and it's an awesome game (maybe mainly for nostalgic reasons) in my book.

2-4 Rated with kids.

Even though frustratingly boring for the adult, one must admit kids (3-5) like it. Somewhat too much of hurting one another for the very youngest or sensitive kids. Quality game which I hope would have remained just as a memory of my own childhood. =)

Yes it's all random with only a bit of strategy, but sometimes you just need a fun simple game with just a touch of screw-your-neighbor factor in for the ride. Plus, it's pop-o-matic goodness!

Good childrens game; interest is fueled by the "pop-o-matic" dice roller. Colorful parts attract their attention; and the game is easy; yet surprisingly fun to play.

Simple game. Easy to learn. We play Aggravation rules where a 1 or 6 gets you out. 6 rolls again. Taught youngest to count.

Doesn't take much for my 3 yr old to convince me to play this and she usually wins! Why can't i seem to pop up sixes like her? Lots of luck, but easy to play and still some big decisions to make on which ones to move.
